Same here!

Didn't had the problem prior to the update, after the update it
started doing watchdog timeouts, occassionaly the interface goes
up/down after the watchdog error.  I did not spot this on my other
servers yet, but the traffic passing the if_em interface is not that
much (just normal webtraffic, mail traffic etc).


Kind regards,
